Ah-Ha moment

Friday, February 22, 2013

This morning I am looking at my fast track goals - drink 8 cups of water.. hmm haven't been doing that so I popped over to my streaks. Hmm stumbling around there too. I felt it coming..... the anxiety and the shame. I couldn't possibly succeeded if I didn't check those little boxes could I? See I knew I couldn't do it. I am not strong enough for this. I missed my workout yesterday and those darn boxes are haunting me and I am a failure.

Wow just writing down the things that were going through my head is kind of funny. No where in that stream of garbage did I ONCE think. I have been eating on track for 6 weeks and have lost 13 lbs. I have completed 4 weeks of Body Revolution and I am feeling stronger than ever. I have made huge changes to my life for the better and am on the right track to living the life I want to lead. I almost let those thoughts swamp me...almost!! No more negative Nelly in my head. I see those little boxes and I choose to see them as a guide to things I want to improve upon as opposed to condemning me for not completing them. I choose the positive and so there is just no room for those negative thoughts in my head anymore.

I believe that my world is completely in my control. I have the strength, the knowledge and the drive to do absolutely anything I set my mind to.

I feel 1000% better just writing this down. I never really understood what the blogs could accomplish for me. I guess that is 2 Ah Ha moments for me today. BONUS!!!

I am going to workout and have a kick butt day :)

    Great job - most of the time we give ourselves little credit for what we have done - and we forget where we have come from. Keep up the positive attitude!

    April - BR is tough but has all sorts of modification you can do to make it easier or harder. I like Jillian's style and half the time she says just the right thing to make me move a little faster. I am enjoying it tremendously.

    Beachbum - Keep moving girl. I love tracking with you in this BR journey.

    Congratulations on losing 13 lbs!! That is awesome!!

    We can really sabotage ourselves with our negative thoughts! I struggle with this too! I tend to focus more on what I didn't accomplish instead of all the things I did. Sounds like you have made a lot of positive changes over the last several weeks. You should be very proud of yourself!

    When I write on my blog or journal I have in my weight loss book I can really see my weak points. Just writing can make a huge difference.

    I have been seeing alot about the Body Revolution and wondered if it was a good program.
